Nope, thats failed the Turing test.

I am perplexed by Linley Gwinnap's comments. I assume he is referring to Intel's Atom S1200, which was described in a release and media event in early December. Yet his characterization of the device is at odds both with what is in the release and what was presented by Intel and HP at the event. Moreover, Intel's device has already been included in HP's Gemini systems and HP has affirmed its superior power efficiency in large Scale-out computing applications. HP has communicated that ARM-based processors will be included in the project once they are available with 64b capabilities. But the ARM ecosystem is lagging here as this will not happen until later this year, from what I have read. AMCC claims a lead here, but they are so promotional that (for me) every statement requires corroboration. So is there even a Micro-server SOC market open to ARM this year of any size?

ARM does not miss any opportunity to get free advertisement. ARM are SOC therefore I have to develop my own chip or be to the mercy of one of the vendors. Intel chip is a proven standard.

FredrichE; I respond to business management inquiries. What ARM server really means today, if you're a physicist looking for specific incidents occurring within the real time Big Data of an accelerator ARM server can do it well utilized at a fraction of the power. If you're into analytic's ARM server with stock FPU and certainly adding a DSP accelerator, can do what FPGA acceleration does for lower power. Some believe on their development investment at a lower hardware cost, applications programming time and power. If you're serving from cold storage ARM server offers low power for a job done well done. If you're serving anything Web 2.0, there is from storage search and serve that ARM does well for lower power. Penguin Computing has put up ARM pages if you look through gets down to the brass tacks about ARM server. http://www.penguincomputing.com/search/node?keys=ARM+SERVER Mike Bruzzone, Camp Marketing

What does the author mean by power efficiency? If the author means performance/watt, the ARM, too, is not as power efficiency as Xeon. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/08/13/xeon_vs_calxeda_arm_apache_bench/ Both ARM/ATOM is good at absolutely power consumption instead of power efficiency.

Please, where can i buy TODAY a microserver with an ARM inside ? (64 bit please)

Yes, there is a realtively small 32-b it ARM server market emerging this year with systems from a handful of little known players such as Boston Ltd. (Calxeda) and Mitac and Wiwynn (Marvell) and at least one large user TK soon. But the big juice comes with 64 bit products in 2014.

Nothing exists for at least six-nine months except FPGA-based development prototypes

And where can you buy a 64 bit Atom server? Nowhere. In fact, Intel will be at least a year later to this market, as they won't have a real Atom server chip (64 bit) until 2015. Not to mention that even for that generation their transistors are really 26nm, not 22nm.
